Since The Man moved in, we've dealt with invading ants, an overstuffed washing machine vomiting water all over the floor, the start of the school year and soccer season for The Kid, the continuation of The Dog's issues, an overflowing toilet, one solid week of going to bed angry every night, the overflowing toilet turning into a much larger plumbing issue, and - the latest - his oldest daughter contracting swine flu.

That's on top of the expected trauma of learning to live together without getting in each other's way.

To say this month has been challenging would be an understatement. But really, aside from that week of arguments, I can't imagine this transition going any more smoothly than it has. Things are good. Busy and unfamiliar and involving a lot of peeing in the back yard, but good.

Posting, I suspect, will continue to be scant for a while. Please don't take it personally. It just means I'm up to my elbows in shit. Quite possibly literally.

Sounds like things are right on track, judging from my experiences. At least you have a few things going for he's used to kids and co-habitating. Mine, well, I'm the boyfriend whisperer, breaking him in.

It'll get better, easier. We believe in time and patience.

Oh crap! Sorry you've been having such a shitty time lately. ;)

All puns aside, hope all the mishaps are soon resolved and you can get back to basics! Nice testing going on though.

You know that if it went to smoothly you would forever be waiting for the other shoe to fall. At least this way you get that outta the way before hand right? One piece of advice though....never go to bed angry. Not good to sleep on it mad. Take off all your clothes and fight naked, then make up! It's kinda hard to be mad in the nude. Just seems silly. Promise, one of the rules to happy marriage/cohabitation!!!!!

Exciting times! I need a woman to move in with me. There aren't enough women in Silicon Valley.

While things are somewhat sticky, I think might be the word, isn't it exciting as well? Or ... like, no? *Laugh*
